MD5 sums of the ISOs are correct, I'm not going to MD5 the burned images - takes a long time, and I don't believe this to be the issue. > How about booting using a USB key? Sorry, yes I did try a USB key - same results as ISOs. Only the IMG file finally worked from USB key, the ISOs and/or hybrid-ISOs did not.
